Rockpool Review

A meal at Rockpool is a crash course in what Mod-Oz cooking is all about, conducted in a glamorous, long dining room with a catwalk-like ramp. The iconic Rocks restaurant celebrated 22 years in 2011. Chefs Neil Perry and Phil Wood weave Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern influences into their repertoire with effortless flair and originality. The seasonal four-course menu (A$145) constantly dazzles and may feature Muscovy duck pastrami with mustard bread, duck egg en cocottee and sea urchin butter, and the lotus-leaf wrapped burrong chicken with szechuan dauphine, tempura, broccolini, and black garlic. Don't miss the date tart for dessert, which has graced the menu for 20 years; or hang on for 20 minutes as they prepare the passionfruit souffle with passionfruit ice cream.

    Wonderful seafood

    If you're a meateater, don't bother with Rockpool. If you love fish, you'll like it a lot. Interesting selections and each can be prepared in several ways. On the downside, we thought the service was perfunctory, chairs uncomfortable, and a bit noisy.
